If you’re grillin’ up a storm for the upcoming holiday be sure to check out Greg Zumwalt’s (of Lady Buggy acclaim) project Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather which is not just a display thermometer but also provides a countdown timer based on the ‘desired’ temperature of your future-meal. It does all the calculations for you and displays the ‘running time,’ ‘estimated time,’ and ‘estimated time to go’ in a webpage and also on the OLED display. Cool! I mean, 🔥hot🔥!
“Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” is a wifi enabled remote grill, smoker and oven thermometer with the added feature of providing real time updates of when the “main course” will be ready to serve. By constantly monitoring the change in food temperature over time, “Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” provides you with a very reasonable estimate of the time remaining to when your main course is ready to be moved from the grill, smoker or oven to your table. You simply specify the temperature you desire, and Intelligrill will keep you constantly informed of the cooking progress and time remaining via the Intelligrill OLED display and via a wifi connected web browser of your choice.
You will need soldering skills and soldering equipment, wire, and all parts listed in the first step, plus an Arduino IDE with appropriate Adafruit libraries installed, to assemble and program Intelligrill.

And please publish your results as I would truly enjoy seeing a much better Intelligrill presentation than mine!
